    Hello,

    I've been a reader since 2013'ish. I tried to join in 2014, but for some odd reason I could never get the email needed to activate. I even sent a message to the moderator but never received a reply.

    This is probably the longest board that I have consistently followed as the topics and discussion is the only thing that I could find that sparks my intellectual interests. Plus, with the knowledge I have gained I've been able to help friends and family with their decisions regarding higher education and ultimately save a boat load of money.

    To the moderator, is there something you can do with my account so my posts are seen right away. I've posted replies to a few topics and by the time my post is approved the discussion is an old topic. I also had an issue replying to a PM (my assumption) due to the same posting problem.

    Anyways, I'm glad to have finally made the transition from lurker to peanut gallery member.

    Thanks for joining the conversation. It's always good when lurkers take the plunge!

    Well, the only thing we can do about your posts needing mod approval is to keep posting until you've made enough posts to no longer need mod approval. And only the Illuminati know the magic number.

    I thought I read the magic number is 10, so almost there.
